Pictures from Texas (part 1)!

Here are the pictures from Texas! I'll tell you alittle about each picture! We hope you enjoy them!

This is TCU's football stadium! It is massive! We had tickets for that nights game! We sat on this side on the upper deck! Let me tell ya, it was a hike, but the seats were amazing and in the shade - added bonus!
Now you can see the front of the seats in the stadium! I took this picture of Paul and Caitlin on our "guided" tour. Again, Caitlin told us so much more about her school then the guides did! This picture is taken in the new Student Center (the B.L.U.U.)! That night we went to the football game and out seats were just to the left of the "T" in TCU. Again great seats!

This is the new Student center. It opened in August. The water fountain is called Frog Pond (I think!) and is at the other end of the student center. The following pictures are of the campus!

As you can see the campus is beautiful! Paul and I feel this was a very good choice for Caitlin! The campus very well laid out. They have a number you can call if you need a ride back to your dorm room if it is too late and you don't want to walk by yourself. The dorms are all accessed with the students ID cards. And they have meal plans to eat and there is always a place open late for those who need a snack or late dinner! The following pictures are of the front of the school, and the "Horned Frog" statue that everyone rubs or kisses before an exam for good luck! Since Caitlin didn't have an exam, I had her stand on a wall and we had her pretend to kiss it. The statue is pretty far from her so there was no way she could have accidentally kissed it!

Well that is all that I have right now. More pictures will be coming in the next few days! Hope you enjoyed taking a look into Cailtin's world! We sure had a great time with Caitlin and seeing her school but still miss her everyday!

Back From Texas

Well, we are back from our trip to Texas. We went out for Parents weekend at TCU! What a beautiful campus! Caitlin is doing great and is making friends! We saw her dorm room and met her roommate, Shaleen. She is a super sweet girl. They get along like they have know each other forever! We decided to take a tour of the school that the school put together and it consisted of, now hold your breath, 2 buildings! A dorm room and the New Student center. Our guides were not that up on the information of the campus. After the tour, Caitlin took us around the campus and we saw and learned a lot more stuff from her! We spent the next week visiting with family and eating, eating and more eating! Oh, while we were out there, Caitlin got another tattoo! Yes, our little girl is all grown up! She got the outline of the state of CA on top of her foot with a heart over San Diego. It's really cute! Paul, Shaleen, and I went with her to get it done! I wish I took pictures of her during the tattoo but I forgot the camera back at Holly's house! We stayed at Holly's the whole time we were there and I'm sure they were glad to get rid of us on Saturday! Just kiddin'! We had a great time with the kids and learning Huddy Talk! I think I actually got it down by the time we left! Holly, you run a tight ship! My hats off to you! I will post pictures later, once I get them off my camera. Hopefully I can do that this weekend! Thanks to everyone in Texas who took us places, fed us, and entertained us! We had a great time! And we promise to bring the boys with us the next time we come out! Ta Ta for now!
